Drivercleaner.NET is being rebuilt – and we need your help!

Drivercleaner.NET has been helping enthusiasts get the best out of their PCs for fifteen years, and it’s still used by loads of people on a regular basis.

And now, after more than a decade of service, it’s being completely rebuilt so it can better serve PC power-users in 2019 and beyond.

Drivercleaner.NET is a superb application that does an integral job: it completely removes traces of old drivers from your system so you can install new drivers in a completely fresh, clean environment.

It sounds like a simple and unimportant process, but it’s neither – it’s a tricky business, and it’s vital to your PC’s wellbeing.

Driving the Issue

The crux of it, really, is that hardware manufacturers don’t really care about their driver uninstall processes – they never want you to remove their software or their hardware, after all.

That means that uninstallers are sometimes riddled with errors. And, beyond that, they just don’t do a good job – they leave behind residual files, old registry entries and other junk. It’s those leftover files that slow your system down, cause crashes, and hamper your hardware with driver conflicts. When you’re trying to give your PC an upgrade with new drivers, that’s no good.

And you’re not just susceptible to these issues if you use the official uninstallers. Plenty of third-party applications also claim to uninstall drivers and clean up the mess, but they’re often no better.

Lots of them are lazy, and just redirect you to the official uninstallers that you’re trying to avoid. Others are jacks-of-all-trades that tout loads of PC cleaning options without being particularly good at anything.

It’s often just a more complicated way to leave your PC in a similarly poor state.

A lot of these applications also try to update drivers themselves – and usually don’t get the right versions, or the latest software. And that’s no good either.

A Cleaner Outlook

These issues mean that driver uninstalls are rarely ideal – and sometimes downright harmful. They’re also a perfect justification for using Drivercleaner.NET.

After all, you know exactly what hardware you’re buying and putting into your PC. And, after spending all of that cash, you want it to work at its best. You also know which drivers you need – so, while Drivercleaner.NET will clean out your system, it’ll never download drivers for you.

When it comes to drivers, getting everything working properly means installing from a clean, effective base – like you would on a new PC – rather than having to work round loads of old versions and irritating, potentially dangerous detritus.

And, happily, Drivercleaner.NET is a clean, sleek application – a tool that doesn’t try and do anything else. It’s no good trusting a cluttered, slow app to improve your PC if it can’t keep itself in check.

Drivercleaner.NET has always worked in the same way. It uses filters to scan PCs and find redundant files from older driver installs. However, these filters became out of date, which is counter-productive in this situation.

Driving Forward

That’s changing. Drivercleaner.NET is being rebuilt to meet the demands of modern computing, and that means a new way of working.

The new app will initially concentrate on graphics card and sound card drivers, and it’s going to work by interrogating your PC to find out exactly which hardware you’ve got – so it can automatically keep its filters updated, which means that it’ll always be able to scan your system for the latest redundant files, applications and registry entries.

The revamped version of Drivercleaner.NET will be the best ever: it’s starting from scratch in order to help your driver updates start from scratch, too. It’ll have key abilities, features and processes that are vital in 2019 – and will be just as useful in ten years.

A Clean Start

However, in order to be the best application possible, we’re asking the Drivercleaner.NET community – and the wider universe of hardware enthusiasts – for your input.

We’d love to hear your feedback on the existing Drivercleaner.NET application, and we’d also love to know what common issues and concerns you have when it comes to swapping hardware, updating drivers and uninstalling applications. We’re focussing on graphics and sound cards for the launch of the new Drivercleaner.NET, but all views on all types of hardware are welcome.

There are several ways to get in touch. We’ve already got a thread on our busy forum – if you add comments then we can pick them up, and you can join the conversation with other users. If that’s not your style, leave comments on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

The new version of Drivercleaner.NET will be the best-ever: fast, effective and fit for purpose. But, in order to be even better, we need your help – and we can’t wait to hear from you.

Hit us up in the forum, or on Twitter and Facebook – and we can all help to clean up the mess that hardware manufacturers leave behind.
